. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fantasy land budgets are balanced with revenues at 19% of the economy, yet meeting the needs of 78 million more seniors and a infrastructure deficit that is growing as america is falling apart. clearly this is not remotely possible if we are going to enjoy anything like our current quality of life. there is a real world intersection of budget saving opportunities with potential areas of agreement. health care reform is one. but not just by shifting the burden to seniors and disabled as the republicans propose in their fantasy budget. my home state of oregon is the middle of an exciting demonstration of how to squeeze out the waste we all know is there and realign incentives. instead of the empty ritual of pretending to repeal obamacare, let's work together to accelerate reform for all americans. if the oregon experiment works, and

begin, as you know, by quoting bill clinton in a speech he gave in yale in 2003. america assumes it will be number one forever and continue doing whatever you're doing and doesn't matter because you'll be number one forever. but if you can conceive of the possibility of becoming number two, surely it is in america's interest to create order that would then constrain the next number one. that is very wise of bill clinton to say that. i'm sorry he didn't follow it up by pushing hard for it. but my book builds on that insight of bill clinton that now is the time for america and the west to create an order that will constreany rising powers i world. >> new security council, what is the chance of this happening? when you look at the reform, you will want singapore's ambassador of the u.n. you tried to get india on china vetoes and you tried to take nigeria, the south africans get upset or vice versa. it's never going to happen. >> but you're absolutely right. and that's precisely the problem that for every japan, there's a south kor that says no. all the losers, the mexicos, the pakis

to hack a person very connected to the clintons and apparently obtained about four memos between blumenthal and mrs. clinton in the days immediately after september 11th, 2012 when she was being informed about what happened in benghazi. this was an interesting question for the media because the memos, you know, the hacked memos contained correspondence about a subject that is news worthy, that has been covered by most organizations, some more than others, but most organizations and yet, when obtained by a hacker illegally, what did the media do with such correspondence? >> validate is what they do, the base rules of journalism would say, something ill-gotten, if it's consequence people are less likely to use it. the bush e-mails that included self-portraits by the former president, and sensitive family descriptions of his father's condition when he was in the hospital, those things made it out pretty quickly. this, being consequential, ironically, hasn't made it out into establishment press outlets. it's not out there now because it could be a matter of real significance. it's no
went into kuwait to kick saddam hussein out of kuwait. during the clinton administration, america brought $11 trillion of kuwait currency. then they revalued the currency. mr.of the main reasons why hatednd saddam hussein each other, he promised him he would not stop him when he went into kuwait read they turned around and did. this is a ploy to get us into the middle east. capitol other news, on hill, the house starts a debate on paul ryan's budget. they will be debating back and voting on amendments. we told you yesterday, it is official today, that the assault weapons ban will not be part of a larger gun control senate package. the senate majority leader told it did notesterday, have enough votes read host: dianne feinstein said yesterday, she tried her best but it was not good enough. the washington post has this headline -- host: this is the front page of the daily news, shame on the united states -- host: on president obama's visit you can seebank -- posters that palestinians were holding up with the words, no hope on them. following up yesterday on the south carolina first
-mail sent to the former secretary of state hillary clinton. other reported targets include colin powell's facebook page and e-mails of the bush family. a shadowy figure is said to be behind the hacking. we're trying to figure out just what is going on, just who the guccifer as it is pronounced is. brian todd is walking into the situation room right now. you've been looking into the story. what are you finding out? >> this is a very mysterious figure and he has the u.s.'s best investigators after him. we have confirmed as wolf mentioned this afternoon the secret service is investigating the hacks of e-mails sent to hillary clinton by a former aide. experts worry the perpetrator may start to target e-mails mrs. clinton, herself, and others will send. a hacker who is reported to have broken into correspondence involving former presidents apparently has found a new target. confidential memos to hillary clinton from a former aide have been hacked according to the website smoking gun. the secret service says it is investigating. smoking gun says it has been in touch with the hacker known as g
and other security issues has counterbalanced hillary clinton's very strong voice when she was secretary of state. so very interesting. uma: what do you think the men come away with from knowing that they are being watched very carefully by the women in this? it can no longer be simply an old boy network. >> yeah. i think the dynamic there has changed too where the men who have serve inside that body for a long time are now used to it. you know, they tell stories, women senators tell the stories when they fist have gotten there, you know, somebody on the senate floor will say, oh, no, this desk is for a senate. kelly ayotte tells the story she turns around, yes, i am a u.s. senator. [laughter] but the men are changing now, i think for the most part tend to look at their female colleagues as just colleagues in the senate. uma: and we're seeing more women in governorships, and that's making a big difference in states across the country. >> yeah. especially strong conservative female governors like nikki haley and susana martinez in new mexico, they're making big strides within the conserva
of state hillary clinton taking a stand on a key social issue today announcing her support of gay marriage. in a video released by human rights campaign. watch. >> lgbt americans are our colleagues, our teachers, our soldiers, our friends, our loved ones, and they are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship. that includes marriage. that's why i support marriage for lesbian and gay couples. i support it personally, and as a matter of policy and law. jon: mrs. clinton's announcement puts her in line with other 0 potential democrats who might want to run for the white house in 2016 including vice president joe biden and new york governor andrew cuomo. jenna: the jury is seated in the trial of the man who posed as a member of one of america's richest family, the imposter who passed himself off as clark rockefeller, remember him? he's more of a conman. he's more than just the kidnaper of his daughter, now he's accused of murder, and the case is going to trial today. greg is here with more. >> reporter: you know, jenna long before he became a fake rockefeller worming his wa
.com. richard, you were in the white house during the clinton years. there seemed to be a lot of progress between israel and the palestinians in terms of peace. not nearly the progress we're seeing now in the president obama administration. >> this is something that president clinton really focused on. a lot of progress was made. we saw in president obama's first term a reluctance to dive into this. maybe because he couldn't find a solution. he left most of this to secretary of state hillary clinton. now i think this trip is to sort of shore up and do some of the things he couldn't get done in that first term and show israel we are really there for him. it's been a successful trip so far for him. >> you have spent a lot of time in the region. what's the significance of john kerry being there before the president and staying there after the president leaves. >> i think it shows this is more than just a photo-op. the white house is trying to downplay expectations but at the same time, they're laying the groundwork for greater involvement and more discussions. we will see if the secretary of
, that though is something that flies in the face of what a lot of economists and former president clinton say have to happen over the long term which is taxes need to go up on the middle class. >> the president has been questioned about fairness and saying if you look at sort of the way that dow is going, you look at sort of the incredible profits on corporations. they're not paying their fair share. but to go back to the issue at hand, i really think the speaker -- >> how do you define fair, cornell? if you tax 100%, you don't get rid of the debt problem. so what is fair? >> i think it is a visceral main street issue. when working americans are paying sort of more taxes than warren buffett, i think you get the sense that it not fair. when you have large corporations and big oil companies raking in huge profits and not paying taxes that, is not fair. >> if you look at the oil companies marginal tax rates, you would be shocked. they are on average the big oil giants pay more than the statutory rate. but to his point, other companies do not. but they stand out as people who do pay. >> it's an i
. a lot of it rests on netanyahu and his first incarnation. even clinton, a guy who was prepared to cut him all kinds of breaks was annoyed in extreme us with some of netanyahu's frustrating behavior. but the reality is that barack obama has to clear away this old business, this dysfunctional relationship and he has to deal with two basic realities. he does not want to be the american president on whose watch the two-state solution expires and he certainly doesn't want to be the america president on whose watch iran acquire it is xas capacity or everybody a nuclear weapon. so israel is central to both of those stories. he's going early, there's no expectations and he's going early with a view i suspect to seeing whether or not he can't manage that relationship with netanyahu more effectively and create a new relationship with an israeli public who's deeply mistrustful of his detachment and lack of emotional connectedness to the idea of israel. so i think it's an important trip. i think it's a necessary trip. and i'm predicting that their relationship is going to improve at least over th
news just into the kron 4 news room former secretary of state hillary rodman clinton is announcing our support for gay marriage. if i in an online video just released, clinton says gays and lesbians to serve the rights of citizenship and that includes marriage. clinton's announcement was are in line with other potential democratic presidential candidates for the 2016 election, including vice president joe biden and new york governor andrew of iuomo . but also this is hillary clinton has publicly announced his support for same-sex marriage. >> a fight an album released a stabbing in sidebar overnight. kron 4 the will tran is live from the scene along the 2400 block of central avenue with details. >> here it is believed six people were involved in the fight. how it happen they do not know. it's started inside the place on to the sidewalk where two people were stabbed. one person received a cut on his head but was treated and released at the scene. >> another received a major- on his neck so badly was rushed to the hospital where did not know how you doing. we have no fatalities in this b
want and you actually expect bill clinton it's not president obama to say. but privately he is grousing. do you see in the 50's a man that is at war with himself over what he believes? >> i can see that. one of the most interesting things following this thread of mixing and civil rights, i mentioned the trip to africa and 67, and that's where we met martin luther king, dr. martin luther king who was 28-years-old at the time and nixon they've really got along. particularly trying to see nixon to lobby for the administration you wanted to get to eisenhower. they said sure, come and see me. they met in washington at the office and they stayed in touch regularly. and king really felt they had a correspondence he was really admired pity and he had a good sensitivity about this. the one black man and eisenhower's white house salmon named fred mauro and he wrote a book called a black book in the white house and he felt completely sort of alienated. people he felt prejudice but he felt -- he said fred i don't think you should always be talking about job issues that affect black people. i think
. >> that flies in the face of what bedid in the 1990s. bill clinton the president and john kasich and newt beginning we created the balanced budget act of 1997 and it was during the bush years of spending multiplied now by the obama years that we have the mess. my difficulty with the tea party freshmen isn't the true passion. they are an important part of the republican party. at the end of the day you have to govern. just saying no doesn't get you anything and create these falls crises. you can get past the false crises if you work something out. it doesn't mean sur renning principle. working together in a way that you get 60% of what you want. >> you have to go back. i don't think the tea party has created the budget crisis. we came in with members and tried to do something about it. i remember a day when april 15 is when the house and senate had to pass a budget resolution. i remember when they had to reconcile the 13 appropriations bills and a day when the president actually had to introduce his budget and today we don't do any of that stuff and that is how we got to the $16 trillion a
clinton did with aid to families with dependent children. so you have this reform of entitlements, reform of the various welfare programs and tax reform taking the top rate on individuals to 25%, the bottom rate to 10%. so you have two rates, 10 and 25. now we go from 10 up to 44 these days. and the corporate rate, which is 35% right now, the average in europe is 25. so when we compete internationally, we've hobbled ourselves because we tax our companies, our manufacturing companies more harshly than they do theirs. he wants to take that rate to 25 so it's close, so it's at the european average. now, i'd rather be better than europe. the canadians are about 17%. i prefer the canadian rate than the european average. so the republicans and democrats in their two budgets really show who they are. now, there's also a third budget which is the progressive budget which is the more liberal democrats, and they do massive new taxes on top of the ones i discussed plus massive new spending. so you have a sense of there's some democrats who want to go even further into big government than patty murra
clinton, good to see you. >> nice to be back. lou: welcome. let's start with tom press. this is an evil merchant operating in the justice department, said the republicans >> i have not and for a long time. he worked -- he worked for senator kennedy. so i would say that he is in the mainstream of democratic. lou: how would you know? >> the mainstream of democratic party on civil-rights issues. i worked at the labor department. >> he does not believe the voting rights act should apply in all. in other words it should not be colorblind. he was president of the organization of maryland that abdicated and supported zero enforcement of any of our emigration laws. >> it's a very selective -- >> you want to give me more? >> i would say that his views are wholly consistent with the obama administration. rest that i will agree with. >> that i will agree with. >> why are people surprised that barack obama was nominated. this is what happened when a president's get elected? to have a choice as to who is going to obtain positions. this is similar to what barack obama stands for. i'm not surprised. >
's more people willing to buy them. some think we're back to where bill clinton was with his homes and then the subsequent bust. the chancellor has acknowledged we need private sector generated growth if we're going to get anything going and that's the way to deal with the deficits, of course. and there were some measures there. no national insurance payments for employees for the first few thousand pounds reducing corporation tax earlier to 20%. infrastructure spending, could it be more? businesses would always want more. but there was acknowledgement he tried while keeping the next fiscally neutral. on the whole, businesses say, not bad, could have done more. i think that will be the summation for them. the key factor, of course, is if you're not going to do more to stimulate your own growth, what happens to the eurozone becomes even more important. and i did speak to the chancellor, george osborne, just a short while ago and i asked him how worried is he about what's going on in cypress? this is what he had to say. >> it is a worrying situation in cypress and i think there's bee
clinton and the democrats with some help from some republicans had put in place, they shredded it under george bush by giving tax breaks to the wealthiest, putting two wars on the credit card, a prescription drug plan that didn't allow medicare to negotiate for lower prices, and the deficit went wild. and it didn't even make sense from an -- i am an old -- i am old. i'm an old economics major, and i remember the basics. you know, you don't go into such deep, deep debt because if there is a recession, you can't really help spend your way out of it, and what happened is when president obama got elected, he faced the worst deficit crisis. that deficit went up to well over a trillion. he's gotten it back to $850 billion. it's still too high, but the fact is i never heard a word from my really good friends on the other side of the aisle. when they were racking up those deficits. oh, this supply-side stuff is going to be great. well, it wasn't great, it wasn't good, and i'm glad that this budget takes us back to the notion in the clinton years which is you have a balanced approach between rev

did this and president johnson did this and in my judgment president clinton did this remarkably wem. and i think president obama is getting better. today he's meeting with 13 senators tonight at the jefferson hotel in washington. which maybe our conference helped move along. but it is tough -- i want to mention one other thing. it's tough because it's hard tore deal with the congress and sometimes it's unpless tonight deal with the congress. but there is no other choice, the president must engage. but one of the other issues i want to raise quickly is another factor, and charlie you talked about this a bit. in the days we were building this country, the space program and all these wonderful things it was easier to work together. let's look at the things they are dealing with today, sequester, how are we going to cut medicare, social security, how are we going to get the budget down. these are tough. these are politically difficult positions to take. in an environment where everything is just cutting and reducing, it's not natural for people to enjoy doing the job under those circums
president bush, but 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2001. under president clinton and then president bush came in and did a big tax cut in 2001. put us out of balance for a long period of time. and during the period of time when the budget was imbalance the last four times out of 40 years, the revenue was coming in, was higher than it is in any year in the republican budget that's before us now. and what that tells you is that their budget approach is trying o seek balance on the backs of everybody else. by really cutting into those important investments that have helped power our company, by violating important commitments to seniors. and in the end, by raising taxes on middle-income people. why else would they not have joined democrats in sending policy statement to the ways and means committee that says when you go about eliminating tax preferences, don't hit middle-income taxpayers in the process. in fact, mr. chairman, if you look at the mortgage interest deduction, for example, mortgage interest deduction really helps middle-income people. homeowners. so in addition to saying, ways and m
where this debate is taking place between obama, hillary clinton, and i'm pumping breast milk. i just had my kid 20 minutes before i'm going on. i'm trying to get my head in the game. think about the questions i wanted to ask. breast milk is flying everywhere over my notes. how do you lean in at that moment? what is the equivalent of that for wolf blitzer or joe scarborough? it is a moment where you say, i can't do this! and i don't care what advice is in a self-help book that sort of gets me over that hump! >> you were doing it, though. >> you've had moments like that? >> no, i haven't. it is so much easier for men because looking at my mom or my aunts or other women in my life that have worked and been juggling everything, it's just so hard, because, you know, you go all in one way and you feel like you're missing out. you go in all in the other warks you feel like you're missing out. it's a constant balancing act and most women i know -- >> as campbell says, life is messy. but i think the point of sheryl's book is asking the question why aren't there more senior women in business,
did in making us forget the things he did? >> at his funeral, bill clinton sort of said let's not judge, they will come a time when we don't judge his entire presidency by his one mistake. he was in public life or 50 years. i think they're taking a broader view of nixon now. the warp was johnson's war. he had told people the u.s. can't fool. he was a cold warrior. this was a great tragedy. 58,000 americans died in network, and 18,000 of them died while nixon was president. they didn't have to. but i don't think -- i think people will never forget what he did. so don't take it medicaid is the right word but i think we'll begin to see him for all his personal quirks, the farther the way -- away we get from them, the wider perspective that we are interesting view will have on them, i hope spent i disagree slightly with it. i think there was an effort made to alter public perceptions. i think richard nixon had a lot to offer as president on foreign policy. one of the things i have to say that richard nixon is he believed in the big play, or you call it a hail mary pass. he was w
it was enacted in the depression with roosevelt to 1999 when bill clinton and congress repealed it. >> well, i don't want to get into a dispute with you, bill. i think -- >> go right ahead, everybody else does. >> i think there was a long history of evasion. in other words ways were found in the '60s and '70s long before the repeal, ways were found by banks setting up investment banks, setting up new financial institutions to get around if not the letter then certainly the intent of that kind of regulation. when it was found possible politically first to weaken glass-steagall and then eventually to repeal it, well, that was even better. but basically the minute the regulation was set the regulated industries took it as a problem to be solved. then they hired the economists like me, the accountants, the lawyers and all the other specialists to figure out how to get around it. >> and armies of lobbyists, let's face it. >> armies of lobbyists to make sure that the laws get massaged and the rules get adjusted so that they can get around it. that's why we keep having financial scandal after financi
passed gay marriage in 1993, president clinton decided to make sure that each state -- again, larry, states' rights -- that washington intervene and say states have the right to not recognize marriages if the people in that state don't believe in that. this has always been a fact. the other thing, "the wall street journal" made a very important point in their very strong editorial today, saying the supreme court should really hold against these two cases. they said, how can you tell millions of americans that they're deeply held moral beliefs are bigotry. >> do we want a legal, judicial decision here, or do you want a political decision? >> right. zb we just got a political decision in the obama health care case, and roe v. wade was also a political decision, which they wanted the right, it was an incorrect decision. >> the right to marry is fundamental. the constitution of the supreme court has repeatedly recognized that. the idea that you can't compare that to loving versus virginia, kelly ann, is wrong because the issue is about marriage. the issue is about marriage, and the cour
, that is not only accepted by you, a republican, accepted by alan blinder, a democrat, with the clinton administration, professor from princeton university. there is wide view from economists from both the left and the right this is stupid, the fed policy of paying banks to hoard money. but it leads to a bigger question, wayne, which is, what good is all this money printing, another trillion dollars of money printing this year if they go through all the purchases if banks are not lending it out? what good is the money sitting there in the banks? >> well not much. it doesn't do much good if you don't get the commercial bank, multiplier effect of having them make loans. and that's where it really is and if the fed wants to continue in this, in this vain, it is going to end up with a very long policy period in which it doesn't look all that smart. david: and a portfolio by the way of $4 trillion worth of assets. that is pumping out, printing essentially $4 trillion in their safe they will have $4 trillion of assets that may be diminishing in wealth. so the fed could be in trouble, right? >
into another recession. 7 million jobs created under bush. 22 million under clinton, right after we raised the taxes. that was in seven or eight years. what we are proposing in our budget -- let's put it this way, under the ryan budget, total receipts of government would be about 19% of gdp. under the reagan administration 23.5%.o under the caucus budget, receipts would go up to 21.8%. the lower range of the reagan administration, budget receipts. what inhibits job creation is not high taxes. history does not show that. what and him it -- what inhibits job creation is low demand. if people do not have money, they are not spending it to buy products. we had a housing bubble collapse in 2007 that eliminated eight dollars trillion in value. when it didtgages for closure as a result. we're still about two dollars trillion -- to join dollars below. people are not investing. ?hy not because of uncertainty. you are not going to hire somebody or invest in a new factory if nobody is going to buy a new product. if everybody is saving money because they do not have money, which is what has happened i

deficits for the first time in -- since the clinton administration. bringing deficits and revenues in line, mr. speaker. what we do is we prioritize those programs that are so important to so many americans. as you see from this chart, mr. speaker, social security spending up each and every year in our budget while extending the life of the social security trust fund. medicare spending up each and every year in our budget while extending the life of the medicare trust fund. mr. speaker, if a budget is nothing else, it is a statement of our values and our priorities. and the republican study committee's value and priority is to end the passing of responsibilities from this generation to the next, to rb -- to be responsible for the bills we create today and paying for those priorities today. four short years, mr. speaker, we can be out of this conversation about debt and deficit and begin the conversation about freing the next generation from the $16.7 trillion that you and i and previous congresses have wracked up on their behalf. with that, i reserve the balance of my time. the chair: the
